We have a light breading for frying so you can enjoy the fresh taste of your meal. We use 100% sunflower oil. Our fresh fish, seafood and chicken selections are served grilled, sauteed or breaded. Grilled and sauteed can be regular, cajun or blackened. Breaded items are also prepared in our kitchen by hand. You get more for your money as well. We take pride in presenting our food to you and know you will enjoy the quality, freshness and value.

We have changed a lot since we first opened. We originally planned on being a takeout restaurant but customers preferred dining in. We changed to flatware instead of plastic and eat off of plates instead of baskets. We have so much more to offer than we did on opening day. If you haven't been in for awhile, we'd love to see you again soon!
